We have arrived
 
3.04am and I have been wide awake since 1.30am. Flight over was long and my tailbone just ached most of the way so getting comfortable was hard and I got about 43 seconds sleep.

Flew through immigration/customs at LAX - DD having a broken arm does have advantages. Candy Cane Inn is nice and clean. Very hot here, meant to be 37 degrees today:crazy2:

Hey mate..welcome to the USA :thumbsup2

Yep, it's a long flight and my dh also complained about bony bum syndrome:rotfl2: nothing a few dozen pillows couldnt fix.....

Sunscreen....we are sunburnt so use it...

I'm up again at 5.30 am...so sleep pattern is going to suck for a while...enjoy the early morning peace and quiet while it lasts

Have a great day

Glad you arrived safely. Will be thinking of DD's arm in the heat. The upside is you'll use less sunscreen.

Woohoo! Happy holidays! Enjoy, we'll see you over there :) in 6 days! Hpefully it's cooled down a little bit!

Glad you arrived safely!! :thumbsup2
Hope you manage to get some sleep soon - jetlag can be a killer!!! :scratchin Looking forward to hearing more!! :surfweb:

Ms. Shuttergirl 09-16-2012 05:52 PM

Sorry to hear about your sore tailbone. This is something I am nervous about for this upcoming trip too.

Jetlag sucks, so does heat but Disney is Yay :cool1: so it balances out I think. Hope your sleep settles down soon.

Great to know and pleased you are enjoying Candy Cane Inn - that's also where we stayed when we last visited Disneyland. I appreciated the shuttle at the end of long days walking around the parks. :thumbsup2 I'm enjoying following your progress on FB too and I see you are originally from N.Z.!! So you are a fellow Kiwi :cool1:

Aust 09-16-2012 09:16 PM

Glad you arrived safe and well, keep cool, I'm REALLY hoping it cools down a bit by Thursday!

Glad to hear you are at Disneyland at last! My DS can sympathize with the sore bum problem, he's had it too this trip, not enough padding , he's built like a stick!

I also sympathize re the sleep, I keep waking up in the middle of the night and have been listening to an audio book on my iPad to help put me back to sleep again, at this stage I'd kill for an uninterrupted night!

Enjoy some Disney magic and hope your DD doesn't have too much discomfort from the cast.

CCI looks like a well located place to stay. Can't wait for your viewpoint on it.

Caroline NZ 09-17-2012 12:30 AM

Great to hear from you. I hope the temperatures cool down a bit for you in the coming days :)

Mum from oz 09-17-2012 05:40 AM

Good to see you made it safely. :) Sorry about the tailbone though. I certainly have no lack of padding but I found that is what bothered me most on the flight over.

I would also be interested in hearing how the CCI is. I am trying to pick a place to stay next year.

alicia1506 09-17-2012 08:21 AM

Yay that you arrived safe and sound! I am also following along on fb.
